Congratulations Shaun, our new Controller!

Congratulations Shaun, our new Controller!

Last month, West Cornwall Search & Rescue Team members accompanied our emergency services colleagues to assist Devon & Cornwall Police with their Lost Person Search Managers (LPSM) course at Venford Reservoir, Dartmoor.

Throughout the day, various scenarios were set up and Mountain Rescue England and Wales teams from across Devon and Cornwall were requested to complete the tasks with members of the Police.

The day brought together multiple agencies and we were joined by other Mountain Rescue Teams, Fire and Rescue, Coastguard, Devon & Cornwall 4×4 Response and a big thanks to Rapid Relief Team UK for providing the catering for the day.

One of our team members, Shaun (pictured with the Police Helicopter), was also a participant on the course. We’re pleased to say that he passed, and is now a qualified Controller in the team.

Controllers coordinate team call-outs, working alongside Police LPSMs and other emergency service colleagues.

Well done Shaun! 👏🙌👏
